Rug “dusting” is the crucial first step in a thorough rung cleaning
Remember how your grandma used to hang her rugs outside and beat the back to get the dirt out? The rug badger is a much more efficient and thorough method of doing just that. We roll the rug out upside down on an aluminum grid and run the Badger over the back. A series of rapidly rotating straps “smacks” the back of the rug and knocks the dry soil out. The aluminum grids elevate the rug slightly so the dirt has someplace to go. This rug had already been vacuumed (front and back) with a very powerful commercial vacuum cleaner, but the embedded dirt is impossible to get out without a proper dusting. This dirt would not be removed with a simple steam cleaning either. After we dust the rug, we vacuum, shampoo, and steam clean it and then hang it up to dry with the help of powerful fans and dehumidifiers. If your rug cleaner is not properly dusting his rugs, this dirt is still in the rug and turning into a concrete like layer in the bottom of the pile.
